LibriVox recording of The Man With Two Left Feet, and Other Stories, by P. G. Wodehouse. Read by Michael Yard.
The Man With Two Left Feet, and Other Stories is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United Kingdom on March 8, 1917 by Methuen & Co., London, and in the United States in 1933 by A.L. Burt and Co., New York. All the stories had previously appeared in periodicals, usually the Strand in the UK and the Red Book magazine or the Saturday Evening Post in the US. It is a fairly miscellaneous collection — most of the stories concern relationships, sports and household pets, and do not feature any of Wodehouse's regular characters; one, however, "Extricating Young Gussie", is notable for the first appearance in print of two of Wodehouse's best-known characters, Jeeves and his master Bertie Wooster (although Bertie's surname isn't given and Jeeves's role is very small), and Bertie's fearsome Aunt Agatha.

Another Good Wodehouse!
This is a neat collection of short stories by PG Wodehouse, who is one of my favorite authors. I seldom hear or read a book by him that doesn't have me laughing out loud. This book is no exception. I especially love "The Mixer", which is a wonderful story told from the dog's perspective.
Reader did a very nice job, clear and easy to follow. Enjoy!
It is an eclectic collection of stories - many have a bit of romance. I enjoyed the two stories written from the dog's perspective - so funny to hear how perplexing we are to one who simply wants to please!
Michael Yard does an excellent job of reading. He has a great sense of timing that lets the humor of Wodehouse shine through.
